Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is an aerobic, gram-negative bacteria primarily detected in the stomach. It plays a vital role in sustaining the stomach ecosystem. H. pylori infection is caused when spiral-shaped bacteria attacks oesophagus, small intestine & stomach lining that lead to gastric cancer, peptic ulcers, and chronic gastritis. According to the National Institute of Health, globally about 80% of adults & 10% of children are prone to have H. pylori infection. To detect the infection, different types of test such as breath test, stool antigen test, tissue biopsy, etc. are available in the market. Furthermore, various newer tests are under different development stages. Hence, introduction of new innovative tests will augment the market progress.

According to the WHO, more than half of global populace carries H. pylori contributing it to become the third prominent cause of cancer-associated deaths. In 1994, the WHO’s International Agency for Research for Cancer (IARC) classified H. Pylori as a Class 1 carcinogen. The occurrence of this bacteria in developing countries is among the highest in the globe, underlining demand for a very precise and easy to administer test. Recent technological advances in urea breath test used for detection of enzyme produced by H. pylori testing is swiftly evolving medical research and is estimated to transmute healthcare approach in the near future.

The industry will witness an influx of new and private players offering innovative and affordable coverage in future. Also, industry players are investing immensely in R&D processes to offer distinguished solutions and gain competitive advantage. Developed countries are implementing non-invasive methodologies in numerous areas of healthcare. In addition, various government organizations are putting efforts to create awareness in public regarding H. Pylori infection will propel growth of market in near future.

Gastric ulcers to boom the helicobacter pylori testing market share

In forthcoming years, the market for H. pylori testing will witness a rapid expansion around the globe. The foremost factors that will contribute significantly to development are, increase in geriatric population & growing cases of patients suffering from numerous infectious diseases and gastritis. An approximate one of six entities infected with H. pylori are likely to develop peptic ulcer disorder. Affected individuals suffer long asymptomatic conditions. Among them, almost 70% suffer from minimal symptoms such as burping, vomiting, bloating, nausea, stomach discomfort as occasional, whereas, major symptoms include abdominal & intestinal pain, peptic ulcer, bad breath etc. Increase in prevalence of such symptoms will boost market growth.

Nonetheless, as more regions of globe get access to uncontaminated water & sanitation, the frequency of infection will decline, ultimately hampering the growth of testing market. Furthermore, demand for serological tests is declining due to less sensitivity & inaccuracy of test results leading to decline in segmental growth in global market. In addition, lack of awareness regarding H. pylori infection and high cost of biopsy associated diagnostics are likely to obstruct the market expansion during the projected period.

Based on test type, the market is bifurcated into invasive and non-invasive types. Invasive test type is further segmented into histology, rapid urease test (RUT) and HP culture. Non-invasive test type is categorized into serologic test, urea breath test (UBT) and stool antigen test (SAT). The soaring prevalence of infections occurred and awareness against the same is driving the Helicobacter pylori non-invasive testing market. Escalating rate of adoption of enhanced non-invasive technologies coupled with rising number of firms offering innovative testing kits will strengthen market expansion. For instance, urea breath test is gaining popularity for its rapid diagnostics capability, safety and high sensitivity for detecting H. pylori infection in children. In addition, growing number of public & private investments and surge in research grants should drive industry expansion.

Point-of-care (POC) continue to dominate the overall market

On the basis of method of test, helicobacter pylori testing market is sectored into point-of-care (POC) test and laboratory-based test. POC test accounted for revenue share of around 120 million in 2018 and may experience high growth opportunities in the market. The POC testing is less expensive and gives accurate results in short time span. The companies operating in the market are focusing on development of advanced diagnostics kits. For instance, in March 2018, Exalenz Bioscience Ltd. received U.S. FDA approval for the BreathID Hp point-of-care system, to detect H. pylori infection in children aged between 3-17 years. The new product development for H. pylori testing is expected to propel the growth of market in coming years. In addition, advent of home diagnostic kits is providing the opportunity for the growth of the market. 

Hospitals will aid in boosting evolution of helicobacter pylori testing industry

Based on end-use, H. pylori testing market is segmented into hospitals, clinics, diagnostic laboratories. Among end-use, hospital segment accounted for significant share of more than 30% in 2018. The elderly population base has a high preference towards hospitals due to convenience offered by them to the patients. Moreover, large number of patient pool, and high adoption of new tests and instruments for diagnosis of H. pylori is expected to fuel the growth of hospital end-use segment.
